Extreme Heat Predicted - Monday 18th & Tuesday 19th July 2022

Dear Parents/ Carers,


I'm sure you are aware that there is a Met Office weather warning in place for next Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th July. The Met Office have now upgraded the warning to a Red Extreme Heat Warning across parts of the UK including the West Midlands meaning that temperatures will be in excess of 35 degrees and could be in excess of 40 degrees.


This will have an impact on what we do in school on those days. We will try to put in place as much as we can to keep children safe and avoid putting children and staff in danger of heatstroke or heat exhaustion.


We will try to keep classes well-ventilated and keep children out of direct sunlight as much as possible. Children will have access to lots of water and will be discouraged from any excessive physical activity.


Children will not be required to wear school uniform next week. Parents should make sure that children are wearing appropriate summer clothing, ie. loose fitting, light coloured clothing. Children should wear short sleeved shirts, such as t-shirts, and summer dresses or shorts. Children must NOT wear long sleeved sweatshirts, jumpers or cardigans - they will be asked to take them off if they do wear them. Children should also bring sun hats and may wear sunglassess and sun screen to protect them.


We will monitor how children are coping with the extreme heat but it may be necessary to close school early in the afternoon if we feel that children are at risk or are not coping with the weather - please make sure your contact numbers are up to date and you are available if we need to contact you.


Many thanks,


Mr Beale
